• Hey ladies, I had my initial appointment with my doctor today and I’m getting blood work tomorrow. I’m freaking out about that, I hate needles! I have a complete update about my appointment in the latest blog on my page. Hope you are all doing well.

    red – Like aussie said, I am 5w2d, so I am in the early stages like you.

  • hollyday – that’s exactly how it goes: Day 1 is the first day of your period, and the last day of your cycle is the day before you get your next period. Hope that helps.

    yeah but my situation is complicated…if you wanna know about it, message me on my page. i’d rather buy it from the pharmacy than have it posted.

    OMG…I just found out that in my state of Australia, the only place that sells preseed is like almost an hours drive from me. Note to self: buy some preseed when down that way next.

    I was also wondering if anyone could shed some light on something I read on the Internet a few weeks ago. I read that if you have really short cycles (24 days or less) that the endometrium doesn’t thicken enough in the time between your period and ovulation/fertilisation for a fertilised egg to be able tom implant. I have only found one site…[Read more]

    Hey ladies, just thought I’d join the discussion. I’m a smoker as well. When I was pregnant last time, I found out on NYE 2007, and conveniently enough my new years resolution for 2008 was to quit smoking, so it worked out prefectly for me. Or so I thought. I m/c at around 9 weeks, and I was smoke free for about 2-3 months, then I just couldn’t…[Read more]

    Thanks guys. If I don’t happen to get pregnant this month, it’s a loooong wait before we will actually try again – we’re actually not trying anymore, meant to be preventing it actually, just we slipped up at the best of times this cycle so now I’m obsessing, haha.

  • LANNiE replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    raycheldavey- thanks. i know it would most likely be way to early to hurt anything, and there’s always a chance that it will be BFN even if I am pregnant, but it all depends on when link implanation occurred. Only one way to find out I guess.

    I hope you ladies don’t mind me putting in my two cents here. I feel sad for you ladies who have horrid MILs. My future MIL is lovely, and I can’t wait til she is officially my MIL. I don’t know how I’d handle being in the position many of you ladies are in. Take care ladies.

    CD 3 for me today. Only a few more days and I can start OPKs. This is our 2nd month of officially trying. I have also decided that I chose a really bad job – working in a supermarket isn’t the best place to be when you’re TTC cos you see pregnant women all the time and envy them like crazy (being in the deli, I wonder how many of the pregnant…[Read more]

    The Angel Sounds doppler is great once you are far enough along to hear the heartbeat with it. It says on the box from 12 weeks, but because I’m a little on the chunky side I couldn’t hear it until almost 14 weeks, and even then it was very faint and that was with the volume up full. I am 15w3d today and heard it loud and clear without the volume…[Read more]

    aussie – I’m thinking it should be fine, as you know I’m only 2 days behind you, and I am having the occassional cramping but not constant like you’re describing. How intense is the cramping? And really, so long as there’s no bleeding associated with the cramping most likely there’s nothing’s wrong, so try not to worry. How is everything else with…[Read more]

    Ok, so I’m due for AF in like 9 days, and (sorry if this is TMI) i peed like 5 mins ago, and I peed less than 2 hours before that and haven’t had much fluid – I had like 1 mouthful of water and half a mouthful of milk in that time – so it’s a little odd. I’ve been feeling like crying all day, not too sure why. Maybe it’s just because it’s that…[Read more]

    Hey ladies. Thought I’d stop by and see how you are all going. I’m doing very well, we are starting to plan our wedding. It’s so exciting. Anyway, as most of you know, I’m no longer TTC, but I’m not out of the running for this cycle since I made that decision after my last period ended. So AF is due within the next few days (between Tuesday and…[Read more]

    RED – Here’s my story. It happened 7 years ago when I was 12. We were to get our tetanus shots at school, and at first I was not the least bit freaked out. Then I saw the needle and tried to run out of the room. The deputy principal and the nurse’s assistant each grabbed one of my arms and placed me in the chair and held me there while the nurse…[Read more]

    Morning ladies, it’s just after 11am here, and I am going to be doing my first OPK today at around 2pm. Haven’t used them since August last year, so hopefully they work just as well as last time. My first cycle of officially TTC since my m/c last Feb. So excited.

    Babes79 – I feel this way too, I’ve got 9 days until my due date. Most people I will end up doing it around I’ll feel comfortable around, although I was given a breastfeeding shawl thing for when I do feel uncomfortable around certain people or certain situations. There are a few people I don’t really want being able to see my BBs on display, but…[Read more]

    RED – I know I’ll get over my fear of needles somehow. Every time I’ve had a needle of some sort poke me, I freak out before it gets done, then after I’m like ‘why did I freak out so much?’. You would no believe how badly I freaked out when I got my tongue pierced, THAT was horrible, but that was also 12 months ago and that was the last time I was…[Read more]

    I hate how I can’t bring my heart to agree with my head when it comes to TTC. I keep telling myself that I want/need to put it on hold for awhile, but my heart just won’t let go of my dream, and it’s driving me insane. I had a little rant about it last night when my fiance and I were shopping in Target, and I was complaining how the maternity…[Read more]
